G'Day Mate

Hello! I'm here today with a super cute card featuring the G'Day stamp set from Kindred Stamps.

The good news is that I actually remembered to take pictures of my process as I assembled this card. The bad news is that I forgot to take pictures while I was coloring. So I have a tutorial of sorts for the assembly, but nothing for my coloring process! With that said, here's how this card came together.

I started by cutting and folding a top-folding A2 card base and then used my Distress ink, stencil, and ink blending tool to create a soft background for my images.

Next, I cut some foliage from 3 different green card stocks to layer behind my images.

Next came my stamping and coloring and my sentiment. I stamped my sentiment on some brown card stock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white powder. I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Copics to color them in.

Before I adhere anything down, I lay things out where I think they look well-balanced. This is my little trick for layered bunches like with the foliage.

When I'm satisfied with placement, I use post-it tape to keep my pieces from moving around and pick up the whole thing in order to place adhesive on the back.

This is what it looks like when I remove it from the card base. I used multi medium matte on the back of the foliage but left the sentiment strip and my image free of glue. I wanted to mount those with foam tape, so this made it easy to remove. When I was happy with the amount of adhesive, I placed the whole thing back onto my card base and then pressed it down.

When I'm satisfied that the adhesive is holding well, I removed the post-it tape and then pulled up my image and the sentiment strip. I added foam tape to the back of them and placed them back on top of the foliage. I then trimmed the right side of the sentiment so it was flat with the edge of the card.

I had decided that the card was missing a little something, so I went back in and added the little koala and a few sparkling clear sequins to finish it all off.

Thanks for stopping by today!
